Configure email accounts for your domain/hosting account

Please follow these directions and/or watch the video for information on creating and verifying your account. Video link:

Setting up an email account for your hosting account allows your server to store emails for you. This is different from an email forwarder in that the account only receives mail and doesn’t forward it. You must have a domain registered with our hosting account for this to work.

  1. Log in to your Sitelutions Space account (CPanel)

  2. Scroll to the “Email” section and click “Email Accounts”

  3. Click the “Add Email Account” tab on the overhead menu

  4. Enter in a name for your email account and select the domain that you would like to connect it to (example:

  5. Enter in a password that meets the strength requirements (You have the option to auto-generate strong passwords)

  6. Enter in the Mailbox Quota (Default is 1024 MB)

  7. Click “Create Account”

  8. Your account should now be created! You can manage the settings of your email account under the “Email Accounts” tab on the overhead menu, which gives you some options like suspending accounts, connecting devices, and more

  9. To actually go into your email account, click “Access Webmail”

  10. You will have the options to pick between Horde, Roundcube, and Squirrelmail as your webmail application (You can read about the differences here, and also switch between using them at will). There are also instructions if you want to run configuration scripts, email configuration instructions to others (most likely employees), or manually figure nearly every aspect of your account

  11. That is all there is to it! After following these steps you will have a fully-functioning email account for mail sent to your address.
